Citibank Sends Credit Card Customers to the Movies

Editor's Note:  This limited-time offer has expired. 

Credit card account holders participating in Citi's ThankYou Network loyalty program recently learned about a new reward benefit: free movie tickets. By redeeming reward points into Fandango electronic gift certificates online, members can instantly access up to $50 in credit toward movie tickets.

Although program members have been able to exchange points for entertainment rewards in the past, the partnership with advance movie ticketing service Fandango means that members no longer have to wait for gift cards to arrive in the mail. By logging into a secure Web site, members can receive a special code that can be pasted into the checkout form at Fandango's ticketing service.

Over the past five years, ThankYou Network participants have earned bonus points by using their Citi-branded credit cards at a variety of participating merchants. In addition, some Citibank cardholders can earn ThankYou Network points with every transaction made using specially designated credit cards and brokerage accounts.
